As from 2015, they started using the word "Oude" on the labels as well. Beer is nevertheless still the same.
Dekoninck Gueuze lambic is a traditional gueuze from the Pajottenland. By spontaneous fermentation and year-long maturing in oak vessels, the gueuze Dekoninck obtains its specific flavour.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, - JAN 6, 2006
Couleur dore, apparence claire et filtre, mousse blanche tachete de nature plutt persistante. Vieux chne mouill, herbage fan et acide lactique disproportionn tentent de masquer les armes, moins propres, de vieilles de poche de patate longuement oublies dans un coin de la chambre froide poussireuse. Acidit prononce sous des saveurs lgrement maltes, boises, citronne ainsi que celles des sucres non-ferments. Finale sche, carbonatation trs active et piquante. Ne semble pas tre un produit 100% lambic. Bouteille 37.5 cl, Dlirium Caf, Dcembre 2005.

djd07 (13480) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle thanks to Grant. Pours a clear orange gold with medium white frothy head that lasts. The aroma is strong funk, oak, apple skin, rubber. Medium body, funky, rubber, wood, light tartness, very good.

37.5cl bottle via Etre. It pours a clean golden color with a small white head. Aroma is funky misty earthy lemony with notes of dust and straw. Taste is medium sweet and medium lemony tart with light funky and alcohol notes. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok Gueuze but a bit rough

ClarkVV (6296) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 29, 2016
375mL 2007 bouteille a Akkurat, 11/28/16.
Clear, bright, light-golden, which is always a relief to see in older lambics, signifying little/no oxidation. White head atop recedes quickly to cover.
Horseblanket shows forth nicely, with minimal green apple for a Boon lambic. Light honey and soft lactic character join with the brett to give a very strong nose, free from any saccharine or oxidation or brewing flaw. No alcohol, seemingly well-attenuated.
In the mouth its full of bright brett, earthy, musty elements to counterbalance with soft hay, red apple, very light lactic acidity and substantial, but well-attenuated maltiness. Fruitier and fruitier as it warms and breathes with light acetic character emerging and a piquant sourness lingering fairly pleasantly, on the finish. Low but tight carbonation.

Vignale (3583) - Malm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2016
Flaska frn Belgiuminabox. ppeljuicefrgad, aningen disig, hgt ganska krmigt vitt skum. Fin frisk doft med druvor, grna pplen, citrus, fat, brett och lite hstfilt. Frisk, syrlig, torr, krispig, aningen lite skarp vingersyra och kanske inte s komplex med annars fina smaker och fin krispighet. Gott

Bottled 375ml. -at the MBR Sour Beer tasting. Darker golden coloured, small white head, sourish nose. Distinct sourness, slightly sweet apple and lemon with touch of hay in the finish. Not bad at all.

Marko (5339) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 10, 2016
At the MBR Sour Beer tasting. Thanks to whoever brought it! Misty golden body. Genuine, funky aroma, hay, sweetish going dry. Lemony/citric sourness, light bitterness, light tartness, dry, good carbonation. OK all in all, nothing much to say apart from the fact that its good!

Alengrin (4999) - BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2016
The present-day version of a traditional geuze from a geuzestekerij in Dworp which ceased activities in 1977 as one of the many victims of the then waning popularity of traditional lambics; has, since then, been taken over by first (in the nineties) De Neve and now by Boon. Thick, frothy, rocky, off-white, stable head, hazy orange blonde robe with peachy hue. Aroma of unripe green plum, gooseberry, lime zest, wet wood, dust, old bread, stale sweat, crabappe, hay. Crisp, sour fruitiness, lots of unripe stonefruit and green apple, dry with spritzy carbonation, lime-like sourness but not puckering acidic, even a light sweetish peachy touch; bready middle with a somewhat grainy edge underlying the esters and lactic, yoghurty sourness, dry finish, still very fruity in the sour sense of the word, woody touch. Has evident traditional lambic complexity but in a somewhat restrained, softish way, clearly a malse geuze. As with the Moriau, also continued by Boon, I am unable to judge to which extent this captures the personality and flavor of the original, so a comparison with an authentic vintage bottle from the sixties or seventies would be interesting - provided any have survived till this day at all...

Swaroga (2174) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 17, 2016
375ml bottle. The date on the bottle is 22/05/2035. Hazy orange and big head. The aroma is fruity tart with notes of sweet grapes, apple, lemon juice, wood, barnyard....and that would be it. There ware some bugs in the bottle. I would surely survive drinking it but my thirst disappeared and wont be drinking it. At least not from this bottle. What a shame.

SkillsFactory (654) - ITALY - MAY 22, 2016
Lotto L51421, 7% ABV, 37,5 cl. imbottigliata il 22/05/2015, aperta precisamente un anno dopo. Dorata carica, opalescente, schiuma bianca fine mediamente persistente. Aroma di polvere, mela verde, pepe, frumento, note oleose, legnose, di pesca e leggere note di stallatico. Al palato buon equilibrio, acidula, mela verde, leggerissima astringenza, finale equilibrato da frumento, legno e leggero stallatico, note oleose. Corpo medio, molto carbonata, texture leggermente oleosa, Lambic di discreta eleganza, ce ne sono di più complessi, ma tirando le somme risulta decisamente piacevole.
